I was skinny growing up but after having children I gained alot of weight & didnt really want to lose weight becuase I though why bother when was always going to have another child so after my second child I never really new how much overweight I was becuase I never owned a set of scales.

I have never been slim....all my life I have been overweight and each time I have tried to lose weight I end up bigger than when I started......I came close once though, but blew it completely. Looking back now (oh yes hindsight is a wonderful thing :roll: ) I will always regret letting myself go again and ballooning out, but what's done is done and now I have to look ahead and realise that I can lose weight.

i think i was skinny when i was about 5 years old. after that i just started to put it on. In about year 7 some came off. and in year 8-9 i started to lose a bit more. was my skinniest at a size 12-14. I never used scales coz i hated to see what they read. Then balooned to a size 16 after losing my mum and then kept creeping up after losing my dad until i reached a size 22. No im about a size 20 and having trouble to keep myself from eating the wrong things..

ally - i know what you mean about looking back. sure, hindsight is 20/20 but i think back to my teenage years and i think WHYYYY did i quit netball, and WHYYYYY did i quit rowing, and WHYYYY did i never do any sort of exercise again? if i could go back and i would lessen the junk i ate and force myself to GET MOVING!

but.. looking back doesn't help except to teach us not to repeat the past.. NOW is the time to do it ally.. and we will :)

Yeah :( Never been slim. I've always been the overweight female out of the groups of kids my age I've hung around.

But there is one good thing about this - Every couple of kilo I lose I'm closer to seeing what I actually look like! It's rather exciting. I'm not worried about being disappointed with how I turn out either, because it's got to be better than fat!

I was skinny as a kid, took ballroom dance lessons 3 times a week till I was 16 so was always well toned and able to eat anything. Had to give up dancing when I moved to Melbourne, gradually went up and up, was around 70 when I finished high school (thought I was huge and disgusting).

Suffered pretty bad depression during the first two years of uni and went up to around 88 kilos. Ate nothing but steamed vegies and rice crackers and worked out 2-3 hours a day for about 9 months to get back down to ~54 kilos. Maintained that for about 3 months before falling off the wagon and have put on about 5-7 kilos a year to make it up to 103 kilos. Those 3 months were pure bliss!

I was 55kg (so I was small), then I started starving myself and guess what? Then I started eating and eating and eating!

I really wish I NEVER starved myself in the past!

I was always that fat kid at school. Always tried losing it, but never had the willpower to stick it out.

I've put more and more weight on over the years, the majority of my weight was put on in the last 10 yrs where I put on 70kgs. I attribute that to emotional eating due to an abusive relationship, then we had a family tragedy where my dad was killed and that was it, food became my comforter.

But now ... its all a different story :D So looking forward to buying clothes from a store again, instead of having them made or buying from the US :D

Overweight all my life. I used to wonder what I'd look like if I didn't have the chubby cheeks. I've mostly lost them now and it's amazing how people change their perceptions of you.

I'm not saying I'm a smoking hot guy or anything, but girls that shot me down 2 years ago are suddenly realising my existence... coincidence?

If I reach my goal I'll keep an old photo or two with me in my wallet to remind me where I came from :)
